Year in Review: Victor Abiamiri

Thursday, February 18, 2010, 11:52 AM
Think way back to early September and Week 1 of the NFL season. Do you remember who was in the starting lineup at left defensive end opposite Trent Cole? It was Victor Abiamiri.

Report: Eagles likely to wait on Vick trade

Wednesday, February 17, 2010, 9:14 PM

We started our Year in Review series with David Akers, and as some commenters and the folks at Iggles Blog pointed out, I somehow forgot to include his performance on kickoffs. Bad job by me. Maybe this is what happens to my brain... Read more

Too early for mock drafts, you say? Never. The Scouting Combine in Indy is less than two weeks away, and there are hundreds of mock drafts already out there.
